Mykolaiv region: SBU exposes corrupt head of the State Enforcement Service District Office
SBU officers exposed a head of District Department of the State Enforcement Service on systematic bribes in Mykolaiv region.
Law enforcers established that the official extorted money from persons involved in enforcement of court proceedings. For the illegal benefit, the official promised to assist in “closure of cases” concerning debt commitments. SBU officers documented several facts of the extortion amounting to over UAH 30,000 (USD 1,060).
Law enforcers detained the official at the workplace on receiving the regular bribe.
The issue about serving a notice of suspicion of committing a crime to the detainee and choosing a measure of restraint is now being settled. The urgent investigations in the framework of the criminal proceeding initiated under Part 3 Article 368 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine are under way.
The operation was conducted jointly with the police investigators under the procedural supervision of the Prosecutor's Office.
